Visit two of Poland’s most popular attractions in one day: Auschwitz-Birkenau and the Wieliczka Salt Mine. This fully organized day trip not only includes comfortable transportation but also skip-the-line tickets and guides for Auschwitz, Birkenau and the Salt Mine.

Start the day with a visit of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum. A licensed guide will give you a knowledgeable and moving tour of the Nazi’s largest concentration and extermination centers, where over 1.1 million men, women and children lost their lives during WWII. You will see both parts of the former camp: Auschwitz (Auschwitz I, the former concentration camp) and Birkenau (Auschwitz II-Birkenau, the former extermination center).

The second part of the trip will bring you to another UNESCO-world heritage site: the Wieliczka Salt Mine. Dating back to medieval times, you can discover a fascinating underground world of tunnels, chambers, lakes and chapels. Descend 380 steps to the first level, follow an interesting tour and enjoy the health benefits of the Salt Mine’s special climate.
